North Lincolnshire Council is seeking residents views on proposed changes to various roads in the region, up to 60 class A & B roads have been identified in a review of speed limits in North Lincolnshire.
The Department for Transport issued a document in 2006 which requested all Traffic Authorities review their existing speed limits on Class A & B roads by 2011. Numerous pieces of data were taken into account in reaching the proposed speed limits for each road such as, speed measurements, accident data and traffic volumes.
In Scunthorpe & Bottesford there are various stretches on four roads that may have their speed limits altered, these are;
The A159 Messingham Road heading south just past the Dolphin pub where the 40mph limit could be reduced to 30mph;
The A1029 Winterton Road, from Glebe Road roundabout to Warren Road increased from 30mpn to 40mph;
The A1029 Winterton Road, from Warren Road to Dragonby Top reduced from 60mph to 50mph;
The A1077 Phoenix Parkway, from Clayfield Road to Normanby Road from 60mph to 40mph;
Messingham Road, from 40mhp to 30mph
The A1077 Mannaberg Way, between Normanby Road and Bessemer Way from 60mph to 40mph;
The A1077 Mannaberg Way, between Bessemer Way and Winterton Road from 60mph to 50mph.

You won't find dozens of adverts covering our site, or some poor attempt to promote local business services under the guise of offering a community service.
